So, let’s get into it!

1. How did you become a makeup lover?

I’ve always loved makeup, but I really got into makeup about a year (maybe a year and a half) ago. I fell in love with makeup mainly through Youtube tutorials.

2. What was your first makeup brand?

I believe that my first makeup brand was Rimmel – a black eyeliner my Mum had bought for me to be exact. If I had to name the first makeup brand that I owned with my own money, it would have to be e.l.f. Cosmetics.

3. Smokey eyes or bold lips?

I love me a good smokey eye but for me, bold lips just takes the cake.

4. What is your current favourite foundation?

My current favourite foundation would be the Rimmel Match Perfection.

5. How do you prefer spending summer vacations: on a beach or travelling around?

Definitely travelling around! 

6. Your 3 staple beauty products

I would have to go with concealer, mascara and a red lipstick.

7. Your favourite makeup brush

My favourite brush is the Real Techniques Expert Face Brush HANDS DOWN.

8. Your favourite music artist/band

I don’t have a favourite band in particular because I listen to various styles of music, but I’m currently enjoying Young the Giant and Sara Bareilles.

9. Fake tan or real tan?

Real tan, no doubt!

10. What’s your favorite summer scent?

That would be The Body Shop’s Coconut Mist.

11. What was the last book you’ve read?

The last book I’ve read is The Fault in Our Stars by John Green.
